    Hi all,
    I have a couple of sandisk 64gb microsd cards formatted to FAT32 32K allocation size using GUIformat.

    The 64gb cards works fine on A9LH n3ds but i cannot use it on A9LH o3ds. It just turns off like no microSD card was inserted.

    The 4gb SD card still boots up the o3ds though.
    Appreciate any inputs.
    Thanks

    Hell
    is your adapter working? Also, you have the arm9loaderhax.bin in the root, correct?

    Thanks a lot problem solved. Adapter was faulty. I used a sandisk adapter but it doesnt work, i tried kingston, HP and samsung adapter and all of them worked. Not sure if it's a brand issue.

    Thank you

    I don't think it is a brand issue, I use a sandisk adapter in my o3ds.

    I also used a sandisk adapter in my 3ds, my Wii and my Wii U. So I can verify it isn't a brand issue.

    MicroSD adapters tend to get worn out and stop working correctly after a while. All adapters do this, it's not related to the brand. Luckily they are cheap and come with everything so it's not much of a problem.
